This new edition will prepare its readers for the task of improving health care of children in the developing world. It incorporates significant advances in technical knowledge and also takes into account the widening role of paediatricians in the health care of developing countries.
Technically there have been spectacular advances since the last edition in the areas of oral rehydration and drugs for the treatment of schistosomiasis, neonatal septicaemia and malignant diseases in childhood. A new section has been added which details practical care for pregnant women, the
management of labour and delivery, the care of the infant, and organization of perinatal care.
